I am a real newbie to linux; having recently installed redhat 9. (only a week ago.) After much reading and surfing I was finally able to get the samba server running to share with 2 winXP boxes on the same LAN an epson stylus color 900 printer locally installed on the linux box.
I finally had it working, so i thought i would leave the server up so if anyone leaded to print the epson would be available.
to my surprise, when i returned the next day, the XP boxes could no longer print, but the printer worked just fine locally. All the config. files were exactly as i had left them working smb.conf, cups. conf) except the file /etc/cups/mime.types.
In my configuration process of the linux box i had uncommented the following line to allow the printing from the XP boxes:
When i could no longer print from the XP boxes i went looking for anything wrong and found that this line had been commented again. Even uncommenting it again would not allow my to print.
Does anybody have an idea what may cause this? Is there some service running in the back round that may do something like this. Human error is ruled out since it would only be me, and i was gone.
